Far from Fit

If there’s one thing I need to do this year, it’s to get myself back into “shape.”

Growing up, I was constantly active. Whether it was playing organized sports, doing something during school or afterwards with friends, or simply hopping on the bike and going for a ride, I was always keeping the body in reasonably good condition. But as I got older, different activities dropped to the wayside. Soon, I started to suffer the odd “catastrophic” sports related injury. First there was the broken left ankle that ended my soccer playing career and then there was the ruptured left ACL which nearly ended my softball career. Each time I hurt myself, I simply cut back on the activities I was still participating in to the point that I really do little more than walk.

And that’s what scares me.

I’ve never been the type to head to a gym, but think that I’ve reached a point in my life where it’s definitely necessary. I just have no clue where to start. Further complicating matters is my affinity to the sin of sloth. And lastly, I feel that I’ve let myself go so far that I’ve gone beyond the point of no return.

So what do I do? Better yet, is there anyone else out there that’s in the same boat as me? What can we do together to rectify this sorry state we have placed ourselves in?

  1. You’ve always had an open invite to join h20geeks..

    What I would do is get a personal trainer so this way you have to go to the gym and after a while you could cut back on the number of personal trainer appointments if you do find yourself going 3 days a week and your not dragging yourself to the gym..

    • I appreciate that open invitation to H2OGeeks, but I have commitment problems and worry about letting everyone down. That and I fear you’d all have to treat a heart attack victim on the water if I were to try.

      I was thinking of trying the personal trainer route to start, but not sure I really have the coin set aside to do so. A co-worker who’s on his way to becoming a certified personal trainer offered to help for dirt cheap, but I’d have to join up downtown and I’d really like to find something out this way instead.
